  • Serve as liaison with Service Support Teams, Logistics, Technical Support, Engineering, and Sales groups within the PSM's assigned service territory.

  • Act as the primary Service contact for SE's Strategic and Key Account customers. This includes actively developing open business relationships through regular communications and visits.

  • Mentor FSRs to grow and develop them and support their personal career goals.

  • Ensure each FSR is complying with all administration processes and field service reporting requirements. Oversee the FSR Sales Lead process and ensure optimal FSR participation.
